Description

Led by the wildly inventive director Mark Rucker, off go four young lovers into the woods on a midsummer evening—when strange and wonderful things are likely to happen.  This shimmering Shakespearean fantasy features the antics of supernatural creatures—the fairies led by Oberon and Titania and, of course, the impish Puck, who creates chaos in the night. But what fun to join in the dream, knowing that by daylight all will be well in a mystical, moon-drenched masterpiece.
